In under a month the
Parliament has significantly advanced in adopting bills included in the Roadmap
of legislative support for the implementation of the Association Agreement
between Ukraine and the EU. This was stated during a press briefing by Vice
Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
February 28, the Verkhovna Rada
has adopted a total of 3 bills and 7 draft laws as a basis – those included in
the Roadmap. This
is of paramount importance, as through the delay with the approval of framework
bills we cannot progress in work on bylaws aimed to ensure the execution of the
Association Agreement", said the Vice Prime Minister.
that the mentioned Government-Parliament Roadmap is not a static document - it
will undergo change, in particular in view of Ukraine's advancement in terms of
the implementation of the Association Agreement and changes in the EU law. "We
have already sent a letter to the Speaker of the Verkhovna
Rada with a request that two public healthcare bills
should be included in the Roadmap", said Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
